LeAnn Rimes

Sues Dentist

You Screwed Up My Teeth!

EXCLUSIVE

0214-leann-rimes-tmzLeAnn Rimes is suing her dentist, claiming he botched up her mouth so bad ... it's messing up her career.

In the lawsuit ... obtained by TMZ ... Rimes claims she went to Dr. Duane C. McKay for various dental work over 3 years. Some of the work included upper front veneers and crowns that the dentist promised would address her TMJ-related pain as well as improve her appearance.

Rimes claims rather than helping, the dentist messed her mouth up bad, causing tremendous pain and bleeding. Back in October, she tweeted, "I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat."

Rimes says she's had to undergo 9 root canals and bone grafting. She's also had a temporary bridge and needed physical therapy as well. 

Rimes says in the suit she will have a "permanent cosmetic deficiency."

Rimes says the dental work is so bad it has been screwing with her career ... impeding her ability to perform.

In her malpractice lawsuit, LeAnn is seeking unspecified damages for physical, emotional and psychiatric injuries. She also wants money for loss of past and future earnings.

Silly LeAnn...all the dental work and plastic surgery in the world isn't going to keep you from looking like a Sleestak! You're a mess inside and out!

I know what's wrong... since she had her veneers put on, she can no longer eat apples, sugar cubes or carrots out of the palms of Eddie's hands. That's the REAL reason she's suing.

Horse face LeAnn and her giant dentures -- she should also sue whoever gave her that ugly chin implant, and those atrocious breast implants. She's just a homely girl and all this work is only drawing attention to her deficiencies. It could also be the ugly on the inside seeping out....

She has many lawsuits! She sued her father, (settled), her record label,(renegotiated), and the most heinous against a teacher and mother of four, that LeAnn called, but was furious that the call was taped. She was actually embarrassed, because the tape showed her true colors, and they are nasty!

It is not the dentist, that screwed up her career. It is the fact that she has bad judgement and no moral fiber, the fact that she forgot that women were the ones to but her albums and go to her concerts. So as far as blaming the dentist good luck.

Ummmm... I don't think she's blaming the Dentist for her not filling stadiums. I think it has more to do with having to cancel engagements, etc. from being in pain.

Leann I doubt your future earnings surpass 20K - you are not a good singer and you're not easy on the eyes. Now that I know how F-ed up your mouth is, I can confirm that Eddie is cheating on you.

Today, fringom the dum dum files:

Newsflash! If you let 9 teeth rot to the point of needing root canals and the rot has eaten into the bone for bone needing graft....you will bleed and have pain at the dentist.

Funny that 9 rotten teeth never caused a worry. Can you nay hillbillie?

You were a foul mouth hillbillie now yer a horsey hillbillie (nayhayahy)
